New Podcast: Twice Removed

Gimlet_Twice-Removed_sitebanner

My friend, author A.J. Jacobs has a new podcast on Gimlet Media called Twice Removed. I listened to the premiere episode and I love it. Here’s how A.J. describes it: “We take a notable person (e.g. Dan Savage) and then figure out how they’re related to one of their heroes. And then we introduce them, live in the studio. Along the way, we talk about their most interesting shared ancestors (the first episode features a piece on Warren G Harding’s illegitimate daughter, and another on Chicago gangsters). Of course, the big point is that we’re all related and hopefully can get out of this crazy tribal mindset that has descended on us again!”
